Ronda Rousey - Don't Throw Up, Throw Down Clinic is SOLD OUT

**** SOLD OUT ***

If you have a ticket, I look forward to seeing you on Saturday. Your name will be on a list at the door. 

No, if your name is not on the list they will NOT let you in. The only exception is for parents bringing their minor child. Obviously, if you have come with your 12-year-old daughter, we are letting both you and her in the door. 

No, you CANNOT pay at the door because we sold 30 all spaces. That is the meaning of "sold out".

No, Ronda is not doing another clinic this year, as far as I know. She did one last year to raise money for the West Coast Judo Training Center and this year (the one below) to raise money for the Didi Hirsch Mental Health Clinic. The funds raised this year are going to provide support for women with eating disorders who are served in their residential crisis centers.

No, she cannot attend your event to raise money for your wonderful thing. She has a very full schedule and we scheduled this one months in advance.  All of her days are already scheduled.

No, she will not be doing another clinic in New York, Atlanta, London, Australia or wherever it is that you live.

No, you cannot come "to help". There are only 30 attendees and she has me and Manny Gamburyan to help.

Yes, I am a mean old woman. 


As promised, here are the details:

Ronda Rousey, UFC world champion, two-time Olympian, Olympic and world medalist in judo, six-time national judo champion and my darling daughter #3 is doing a clinic on March 9th. She has done exactly ONE clinic since winning the Strikeforce world title and right now she doesn't have plans to do any more other than this one.

What is it:
A two-hour clinic on matwork, judo and mixed martial arts. Limited to 30 people.

When is it:
March 9th , from 12- 2 pm.

Where is it:
Glendale Fight Club
601 S. Brand Blvd
Glendale, CA 91204

Why is she doing it?
To raise money for the Don't Throw Up, Throw Down fund to fight eating disorders. 100% of all money goes to the Didi Hirsch Clinic

Ronda is matching the money raised by the clinic with $5,000 of her own.

How much is it?
$200 Make your check payable to Didi Hirsch.

How can I get a ticket ?
Pay attention here: You need to pay in ADVANCE as we are only selling 30 tickets and they are only available at three places.

You can register and pay during judo practice on Sunday, March 3rd  2-6 pm at Millennia MMA, 8423 Rochester Ave. Suite 102 Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730. Or email Gary Butts at  Don't ask the staff at Millenia because they don't have tickets and cannot help you.

Glendale Fight Club, 601 S. Brand Blvd, Glendale, CA 91204 They are open Monday - Thursday 4-8 pm
         Friday 4-6 pm and Saturday 12-2 pm

What is the third place?
I'll tell you later.

Why is it so hard to get tickets?
So we can be sure we don't sell more than 30. 

Can I just come watch and not pay? Can I just pay a spectator fee?
No and no. The only exception is that if you brought your CHILD, say your fifteen-year-old daughter, you can certainly stay and watch.

Can I tape the clinic?
No. The gym asked that we not have videotaping and since they donated  the facility we will respect their wishes.

Anything else?
Copies of our book, Winning on the Ground, will be available. We donated these for the clinic, so, again, 100% of the proceeds go to Didi Hirsch.

Ronda is a good fighter but there will soon be someone better out there who will take her down and teach BOTH of you humbleness. Seems like you, HER MOTHER, are living through Ronda's "fame" rather than your own accomplishments.

Your raising money comments about how many, who, nO , NO, no ronda will not go there , no , really degrades people in your desperate need to feel high on a pedestal. Yes, there are obsessive fans but keep it real, Ronda is not a gift to all humans so get over yourself LADY.

Dont take this the wrong way but you are not old and mean, you are just mislead, delusional and a absolute bitch.

Was that rant necessary?

Or are you having a really bad day with some very inconsiderate people?

Dr. AnnMaria said...

I rather doubt that people choose to be mentally ill. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness.

Yes, I have a Ph.D., won a world championships, founded three successful businesses, published a book and received millions of dollars in grant funding for research and demonstration projects. I really need my daughter to win a sporting event for my self-esteem.

What do you do to bolster your self-esteem? Post comments on blogs?

Sylver -
Were you asking me if I was ranting. Not ranting, it was my apparently failed attempt at humor in responding to some questions I got asked about 500 times.

i dnt think its being mean at all..i think its answering all the dumb questions that are goin to be asked after it says its SOLD OUT. i doubt ronda has time to do this with 50 million ppl that would want to do it and thats why it has a 30 limit. im pretty sure if ronda had the time she would love to have a lot more people come to this but in real life its just not possible. she has a very hectic schedule. does coming on here talking trash to her mom make you feel like a bigger person?? does it bring up your self-esteem?? if you really think her mom needs to live thru "rondas fame" then your more of a idiot then i originally thought. her mom is a very successful women and has accomplished a lot in her life so she can live thru her own "fame" if you really need to put it that way. she has every right in the world to be proud of her daughter for doing everything she has done. she has the right to be a "PROUD MOM" without dealing with people trash talking her. she has every right in the world to be proud that she raised such a amazing daughter that can do all the things ronda has done. just because they are successful in life and proud of being successful doesnt mean they deserve to be put down. just because you have never been successful in your life doesnt give you the right to put them down. they are just as human as everyone else is and seserve respect just like everyone else does...end of my rant

Dr, D, aren't you glad the clinics over now?!? May you get rest this weekend.

Stonewall Jackson said...

Dr. D, aren't you glad the clinic is over now?!? I love it when you're 'mean'!!! Some people need the basics in discernment 101 so they can enjoy your humor as much as I do! :) If you don't mind, I want to make a t-shirt regarding your 'tact'. I will send it to you when complete.
P.S. You're not 'old' either, just well seasoned. ;)

Dr. AnnMaria said...

The clinic went well. Raised over $11,000 for treatment of people with eating disorders and a good time was had by all

Stonewall Jackson said...

Dr. D, I meant glad about clinic being over so you don't have to put up with 'anonymous' posts from idiots. I'm grateful y'all raised what you did. Someone I know may benefit one day from your efforts.
